Call for an Appointment
I love being a part of such a great moment in my patients' lives. Being witness to something as amazing as pregnancy and birth on a regular basis is such a blessing.
As a midwife, I try to view birth as normal life event - not a medical event. I try to support, educate, and empower my patients as they move through this momentous event. I sort of just fell into nursing as a career, but really fell in love with it in my undergrad classes at Iowa, especially OB.

As midwives, we specialize in normal low risk pregnancy and well woman care. We can help you with family planning, annual exams, and pregnancy, etc.
